Holding the guitar pick the correct way is an important skill to learn right away and your playing will benefit from it. Here’s how to hold it the right way.
First, curl your index finger slightly and place the pick on your index finger exactly as shown below. Notice that the edge of the pick rests right at the corner of your fingernail. Make sure you point the pick in the right direction. Don’t let too much of the pick stick out past your finger.
This pick grip may feel very strange at first but I recommend you stick with it and try to get used to it since it gives you a lot of advantages like great pick control and the ability to do advanced picking techniques like hybrid-picking. Hang in there!
